Overview

This is the place where the mobile platforms or floats known as Rocas or Tres Aguilas de San Juan Evangelista (the three eagles of St John the Baptist), are stored along with other items used in all manner of public events and religious processions. These other items include the Gigantes (giants), Cabezudos (literally, big heads), flags, costumes and more. The building's door is particularly big as these Rocas have to be able to get in and out. The Rocas are used to perform the Misteris (Mysteries of Christ) as well as playing an essential role in the ProcesiĆ³n del Corpus Christi, a tradition dating back to the 15th century.
